Omg I don’t know why I didn’t blog about this! This is so overdue. In conjunction with Daniel’s first birthday, we did a Baby Cake Smash photoshoot with Cottony Photography. We brainstormed for heaps of ideas before we finally settled for a great suggestion by Era, the photographer.
Check out this previous post on ideas for a kids photo shoot. I decided to go with a baby cake smash shot.
We got a very healthy cake from Delcie’s Desserts. Check out how beautiful it is!! I chose them because unlike most cake stores, they specialise in 100% cholesterol & trans-fat free cakes, they can do vegan cakes (eggless & dairy-free), diabetic-friendly, baby friendly, soy-free, nut-free, and for our dear muslim friends, they are halal-certified!
Flavour: Banana Vanilla
5.5in Round $50
Cover Fondant $70
Surface Design details $35
3D Topper Moustache $50
3D Topper Bow Tie $30
Most importantly, it is a eggless and dairy free cake – perfect for my 1 year old! I mean I have considered making it but I decided I was too crazy. I wasn’t going for good taste on this cake but surpringly, this tasted really good too!! Daniel really ate quite a bit of it and thankfully didn’t get sick! Phew!
The Photo Shoot Where He Smashed The Cake!
Here’s how the shots went. It was perfect, just as I wanted it. Era and I really work well together. I’m definitely getting her to do my maternity, newborn and family photoshoots again!
The setup of this special baby cake smash shoot was also designed to flow through to this 1 yr old birthday party that we held in a cafe in Hong Kong for our friends and relatives there. Check out the “Little Man Moustache Themed Party” we had!
Look at Baby Daniel go at the cake!!! ♥ Thank you Era for capturing such beautiful moments of my family (and my hair, damn I really need to grow my hair out again). I absolutely love this Baby Cake Smash shoot! I think everyone should let their baby try too!
